As amazing as the tech under the Hyundai Ioniq 5’s futuristic styled chassis is, you’d think it's not exactly the first choice for a major celebrity, let alone the so-called “King of Bollywood.” However, Shah Rukh Khan has been the face of Hyundai since 1998, and as part of their continued partnership, he is now a proud owner of the Ioniq 5 EV. 

Hyundai’s flagship electric SUV was launched in India in January, at the 2023 Auto Expo, by Shah Rukh himself. Last week, the Ioniq 5 crossed the sales mark of 1,000 units, and now, the brand gifted Shah Rukh the 1,100th unit.
